I am in amazement

at how quickly
some people grow tired and bored
of each other

I see the sun each day

he is always dressed in the same fabulous
bright outfit

and I never tire of his shining face

I never grow bored with the beautiful sky

even when it stays calm
for a really long time
I never grow weary of the trees

or the birds, or even passing cars

even though they are always around

I never even tire of the streets

or the concrete of the ground

with all its tiny cracks and imperfections

How much more joyous should I be

to see the face of someone I love
looking back at me
I don't tire of being covered by the shroud of night
gazing up into the dark sky

seeing the same stars ,
sparkling like divine diamonds

I live this life and try to enjoy it

trying not to take even the smallest things
for granted

even though I 'm sure I sometimes do

even when times are stressful
I try to believe It will somehow make me stronger

When tears fall from my eyes
I try to stay hopeful

that this rain that streams
down my cheeks

are life giving waters
that will help to wash me clean

purifying me, renewing my spirits
and positive energy

that I will be a receptacle
for better things to come.

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
